is this something to keep away or maybe worth a try?
I received this email.....
"Thank you for filling out the form at Silver Snowball . com and
for your interest in a fast simple way to accumulate silver.
You are getting in at a great time because SSB just started and
precious metals have been moving up steadily. Gold keeps making new
all time highs daily. Silver, which has even greater profit
potential, has been blasting up and could spike much higher at any
The Silver Snowball business is doing GREAT as the public is
finally noticing the rise in precious metals and the plunging US
We suggest you join immediately. Due to the explosive daily rise in
precious metals our prices may have to be adjusted soon. Join now
to lock in this minute's price.
Don't wait for $100 an ounce silver. Get in while it's still
affordable and be part of the booming silver and gold business.
Once we receive confirmation of your payment I will send you your
marketing website. Your Silver Eagle coin will ship next business
And so you know, SSB is international. We currently have members in
US, Canada, Australia, UK, Jamaica, Philipines, New Zealand, Korea,
Norway and Iceland. As long as you can receive international mail
and can use any of our payment processors you are invited to join.
And for some reasons, people outside the US are MUCH more aware of
how the US Dollar has been has been crashing than most US citizens
who don't have a clue about how their money has lost value.
Eventually people in the US will gain this insight, and of course
some have which is why they join SSB.
I'll send you confirmations of anyone who submits the form on the
first page of your SS site, then send you another confirmation when
they join. And I'll also send followups on your behalf. So you are
also getting a splash page and complete online marketing system.
Your Sponsor's ID was tracked when you submitted the form at their
If you didn't complete your order, go the main page at
silversnowball dot com (without the spaces which I left out because
of all the email filters these days) and complete it.
The easiest way to join is to just click on the Add to Cart link in
the middle or the one on the bottom of the main silversnowball dot
com page. We have our own credit card merchant account and can
accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards. We
make it easy for your members to join!
When your order comes in I make sure the correct sponsor gets
credit. Your marketing site will work the same way. Just get
visitors to your splash page and sooner or later they will want to
Let me know if you have any questions on anything. Just to let you
know, although SilverSnowball is brand new and no one knows about
it yet, of the very few who do I'm hearing very positive responses,
my favorite being, "Your SilverSnowball is insanely cheap and easy
to grasp, and a brilliant idea."
I'd expect retention to be very high as people decide it's a good
idea to have a few hundred coins that might hold up in value as the
dollar continues to be worth less almost daily now. Remember when
the US Dollar was worth more than the Canadian Dollar? Checked it
lately? Think the stock market has been going up? Find a chart of
stocks priced in gold.
The last couple decades were all about real estate, stocks, and
technology. This decade and maybe the next one will be about
commodities. If you don't have enough money to buy an oil well at
least do the prudent thing and own some silver coins. Get prepared
for the coming silver boom. Be in the silver business.
And it's just fun to get silver coins in the mail.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
